Congrats, Melanie.She was by far the best vocalist in the competition and deserved to win. My favorite tho was Josh. Knew he wouldn't win, but sure glad he got this far. even came second. Still haven't forgiven Nicole Scherzinger for cutting Rachel Crow for Marcus Canty. The silliest decision ever made in music history.

yes oh! iono why she spoilt it for us! but i am soooooooooooo happy Melanie won...she is the one that I put my money on!!!!..Go Melanie Go!

Astro and Marcus were very good as well. Chris wasn't the best vocally, but there was just something about him.

Melanie isn't unique. A black girl who can sing...bet you haven't seen that before. What sets her apart from the other black girls who can sing out there. Oh well, congrats to her.

Linda, you shouldn't have posted this cos some of us in the Uk haven't seen it yet. Next time let your title be : For those that wish to find out the Xfactor USA winner - continue to read to find out. That way we have the option to find out the winner.

Proud astronaut walking into the building...I so loved Astro but I am glad Melanie won. I love Chris Rene too.
As a dedicated Xfactor fan, I can confirm that US xfactor was so nice...full of talents, drama and no pretence unlike our UK one. Love love Simon Cowell

You should have warned us of the spoiler

Yes O, Linda. This is a spoiler. I would have preferred to watch this later today in the UK. Now it's an anti-climax, thanks to you!

KILL JOY!, KILL JOY!!, KILL JOY!!! Why did you have to spoil it for us in the UK, intentionally stayed clear of my US friends on FB, just for LIB to spoil it. Aaaaaahhhhhh!!! Melanie was the one I always looked forward to listening to week after week, but I hoped Josh would win, just love his raspy voice. All three finalists are winners in my eyes, they will all do well.

Is she 19?
I can't believe this.
I really didn't have the slimest idea that she is 19 year.
Maybe i'll go for her.
